Profile Information

Wayne Edward Clarke is an author, sociologist, musician, and inventor.

Over the last few years I've spent most of my intellectual and creative energies in writing science fiction and fantasy novels. I’ve been a hard sci-fi fan my whole life, but everyone else I know who’s an avid reader are all fantasy fans. Over the years I’ve borrowed all their books, and learned to love that genre as well.

My science fiction influences include the old masters; Heinlein, Asimov, Niven, Bradbury, Clarke, etc. Also William Gibson, Iain M. Banks, and Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card. My favorite relatively unknown author is Daniel Keyes Moran, and if you like sci-fi you should read his Continuing Time trilogy; Emerald Eyes, The Long Run, and The Last Dancer. They might be out of print, but I think you can still get them as ebooks online.

My fantasy influences include Raymond E. Feist, David Eddings, and Jaqueline Carey.

I’ve also been influenced as a fiction writer by my sociological work, and my science fiction novel People Of The Tiger (and the rest of The Rational Future Series) is set in a utopian future where my social policies have been implemented, which is a good way to get those ideas out into the public consciousness.

Much of my social thinking permeates my fantasy novel Blessings Of A Curse as well, though it’s a lot harder to notice there. I’ve also incorporated my ideas on the law and legal reform in that book.

I was born in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, on Sept 21, 1963. I'm estranged from my father, having met him twice since I was a toddler. I lived in Calgary, Alberta, Canada from 1980 to 2014, since then I've lived in Cebu, Philippines. Now I can travel where I want, and I might, at any time. But it's hard to beat the Philippines.

I have three brothers and a sister. My sister is married, she and her husband each have two grown sons. All of them and my mother live in Calgary, except me and one nephew here in Cebu.

I'm intensely and compulsively self-educated, I read at about 300 words per minute, and I've increased my IQ to about 160.

I've always enjoyed inventing and designing machines. Most of the machines I've designed are new types of vehicles.

I was a professional musician for about nine years. My musical skills include lead and harmony vocals, most styles of guitar and bass guitar, some drums and keyboards, songwriting, mixing, and production.

I spent about fifteen years researching and designing a comprehensive change in society and culture that will solve all the world’s major problems, guided by the principles of bio-sociology as introduced and developed by Prof. Edward O. Wilson, and influenced by Dr. Desmond Morris’ human sociobiology. I haven't worked on it like a fanatic over the last eighteen years like I did for the previous fifteen, but I have continued to develop my work in this field.
